Arrowroot?

How much arrowroot would I need to thicken 1 cup of 'gravy'?

I always start with 1/4 tsp. and then add another 1/4 at a time. For 1 cup of gravy 1/4 tsp should be enough. It will thicken more as it stands.

I use to use arrowroot powder all the time but I switched to xanthum gum because at some point I got worried about the carbs in arrowroot but I may have been misinformed and was mistaking arrowroot for arrowroot powder. Anybody know the carbs in arrowroot, xanthum gum and guar gum?

Arrowroot has about the same carbs as cornstarch.

1 cup arrowroot - 108.5 net carbs
1 tablespoon arrowroot - 6.78 net carbs
1 teaspoon arrowroot - 2.26 net carbs
